Mission Statement

We provide exceptional care and unparalleled services to patients and families who have placed their trust in us.

Description

At LHC Group, we’re dedicated to improving the lives of our patients. Whether you or someone you love is recovering from an illness at home, requires specialized treatment at one of our long-term acute care facilities or is in need of hospice care at the end of life, you can count on our attentive and compassionate professionals to deliver high-quality care.

Care designed to give supportive care to people in the final phase of a terminal illness and focus on comfort and quality of life, rather than cure. The goal is to enable patients to be comfortable and free of pain, so that they live each day as fully as possible. Aggressive methods of pain control may be used. Hospice programs generally are home-based, but they sometimes provide services away from home -- in freestanding facilities, in nursing homes, or within hospitals. The philosophy of hospice is to provide support for the patient's emotional, social, and spiritual needs as well as medical symptoms as part of treating the whole person.
